    Abstract

    To support the human factors engineer in designing a good decision support system, a tool kit has been developed for analyzing the empirical data of the interactive decision behaviour described in a finite discrete state space (e.g., human-computer interaction). The observable sequences of decisions and actions produced by users contain much information about (1) the mental model of this user, (2) the individual problem solution strategies for a given task, and (3) the underlying decision structure. The presented analysing tool kit AMME can handle the recorded decision and action sequences and comes up automatically with (1) an extracted net description of the task dependent decision model, (2) a complete state transition matrix, and (3) different quantitative measures of the decision behaviour
